NEW YORK , January 31, 2022 (press release) –

Busch Light and Kenny G Are Heading for the Mountains, and the Super Bowl

Two Legends of Smoothness Come Together to Reprise Busch Light’s 1979 Jingle “Head For the Mountains” for Super Bowl LVI

Busch Light and Grammy Award-Winning Saxophone legend, Kenny G, are coming together in what is sure to be the smoothest advertisement in Super Bowl History. The spot comes on the heels of a tremendous hot streak for Busch Light, as popularity soars not only in the Midwest, where Busch Light is the gold standard for beer, but in new markets across the country. "Head for the Mountains" pays homage to Busch Light’s 1979 vintage jingle with a modern rendition. This is the first time Busch Light will have a major presence in the game in five years, coinciding with an all-time high in the brand’s popularity.

“More than 40 years ago, ‘it’s cold and it’s smooth, and it’s waiting for you’ launched Busch Light’s jingle into the hearts and minds of beer fans,” said Daniel Blake, Group VP, Budweiser & Value at Anheuser-Busch. “And when the time came to revive that iconic jingle, there was only one person smooth enough for the job, American jazz saxophonist, and one of the best-selling artists of all time, Kenny G. We can’t wait for Busch Light fans to see their favorite beer show up on one of the biggest days in sports.”

The spot features Kenny G delivering an electrifying performance of “Head for the Mountains,” bringing to life the beautiful sounds of crisp, cold, mountain refreshment you get every time you crack a Busch Light. The spot was created by the Martin Agency and is inspired by the iconic mountains -- the ones you hike, the ones on the Busch Light can and the ones serenaded in the classic Busch commercials from the 70’s and 80’s. To bring the ballad back in a big way, the creative features giant, singing mountain spirits (including Kenny G) serenading Busch Light drinkers because, as the song goes, ‘every time you crack open a Busch Light, the mountains start singing’.

“Busch Light is about smoothness and refreshment, and if you’re familiar with my work, it should be pretty clear why this partnership works so beautifully! said Kenny G. “For this project, we tapped into the Busch Light archives and came up with a really energetic reprise of ‘Head for the Mountains.’ I’m excited for the fans to hear my sax on it, and hope they can enjoy the spot with a cold Busch Light in hand on game day!”
